SEATTLE--The Washington baseball team completed a sweep of a two-game, non-conference series Wednesday against Portland, beating the Pilots 6-1 at Husky Ballpark.
Washington (35-14) was led by All-America center fielder Chris Magruder, who went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two runs and two runs batted in.
Husky freshman Daniel Jahn (1-0) earned his first career victory. The lefty from Seattle's Franklin High worked the first five innings of the game, allowing one run on four hits and five strikeouts. Jahn combined with relievers Matt Gardner and Matt Massingale to issue the Pilots no walks on the day.
Starter Derek Anderson (1-7) allowed three runs on five hits over three innings as the Pilots fell to 9-40 on the season.
Jason Hertel had two hits, including the game's only home run, to lead Portland. No Husky other than Magruder posted two hits.
Washington closes out the current 10-game homestand and the regular season this Friday through Sunday when California comes to Husky Ballpark for a three-game series.
